After dressing Ann Romney for the Rupublican National Convention, de la Renta sent numerous looks down the runway that would easily please a political wife, a lady who lunches or anyone who attends the occasional black-tie event. Our favorite was this canary yellow look worn by model Joan Smalls. The lace top and pencil skirt was classic and charming, and many women will appreciate a longer sleeve length for spring—often a very difficult thing to find once the weather turns warm. Dashes of embellishment make the look feel special, and very Oscar de la Renta.
